We thank Al-Mendalawi for interest on our article. Community-based studies on Indian population have reported a high prevalence of Vitamin D deficiency, which might result in various skeletal and extra-skeletal adverse consequences.,, Studies conducted on diabetes patients also showed a high prevalence of hypovitaminosis D,, which may further contribute to the development of complications, including cardiovascular disease and nephropathy, thus making it a requisite to evaluate Vitamin D levels in these patients. In this context, we agree with the authors suggestions that more number of well-designed case–control studies are needed to thoroughly understand the role of Vitamin D in diabetes mellitus.
